Known for his earlier book, Saltwater Buddha, legendary surfer Jaimal Yogis visits with his newest book, The Fear Project: What Our Most Primal Emotion Taught Me About Survival, Success, Surfing ... and Love (Rodale). "This book would be worth the price of admission for the Maverick's chapter alone—the first, and as far as I know, only literary first-person account of riding one of the greatest big-wave breaks on earth, for which Yogis has both the surfing ability and writing chops, making a unique combination to surf literature. But Yogis is also a man on an authentic mission—to face down his deepest fears and—as in all of his writing—to interrogate the deepest sources of meaning in every aspect of human life. From his hapless Alcatraz swim at the book's beginning to his success at Maverick's to that biggest challenge of all—fatherhood—Yogis writes with confidence, clarity, and brio. This is a heartfelt, hard-won, and utterly worthwhile book."- Daniel Duane.
